No trainings to show


Intimate Partner Violence is one of the most challenging fields of practice for social workers/mental health providers, because of the intersection with the criminal justice system. Although the best interests of the child requires the court to consider domestic violence in determining custody, courts often view allegations of domestic violence during divorce and custody as a ‘he said, she said’ situation.  Strategies and interventions in assisting survivors during this process will be explored.  Participants are encouraged to share their expertise in their work with survivors during the court process and after.  The importance of self-care for both survivors and social workers/mental health providers will be discussed.
